History

The 1st Virginia Fleet was founded on 3 October 2013 as Legio I Virginia to defend the Austenasian Crown Dependency of New Richmond, its name derived from West Virginia, the US state which surrounds New Richmond. A new cohort was added on 16 November 2013 to defend Terentia, and a naval based century was added on 29 April 2014 to defend Shineshore.

Upon the re-establishment of the Imperial Navy on 8 March 2015, Legio I Virginia was transitioned into a naval unit and renamed the 1st Virginia Fleet. Although the majority of its personnel are naval infantry, the Fleet does have several boats, and maintains a naval presence on Lake Ontario.
